The Vargem Grande Farm is an old coffee farm dating from 1837, the historical period known as "Coffee Cycle". Their owners were known as the "Coffee Barons" and made fortunes on the Paraiba Valley region, mainly between the towns of Areias, Bananal, Sao Jose do Barreiro, Silveiras and Queluz.  Coffee, the "black gold" was the financial backbone of the Brazilian Imperial power until its collapse in 1889. With the Republic in Brazil, the coffee production moved to the west of Sao Paulo and the region went into an economic decline.

The garden construction took around ten years. Roberto Burle Marx, Haruyoshi Ono, his associate and Clemente Fagundes Gomes, the owner, transformed the coffee drying yard in an exuberant garden with three levels, water mirrors and natural swimming pools. Today the garden follows the original plan and is under Haruyoshi Ono's supervision from Burle Marx & Cia. Ltd.
